High slits. High shine. High heels. Sequins. Ruffles. Bare backs. Long sleeves. Nudes. Blacks. Reds. Greens. No, I’m not reciting the dictionary randomly, I’m just reminiscing about that time we all went to the Oscars, remember?
Champagne pouring off the skies, Oscars thrown in our heads post-brilliant-performances, rubbing elbows with the coolest of the cool. Taking selfies with Leo & Tom Hardy. You know, the regular Sunday night. One thing about me is my capacity to dream, so in case you can’t get high on wishes and what if’s… leave it to this idiot, aka moi to do it for ya’.
Oh my dear fashion lovers, but you can laugh and smile all you want at the imaginary journeys I usually embark on, but at least I got your back and I got it all figured out. Fashion wise, dresses wise, beautiful evening gowns wise. All of it.
We might have skipped the Oscars and the Globes this year, but let’s not forget we’re beautiful gorgeous women on this Earth and that means we’re always attending all sorts of events that require elegant gowns and beautiful evening dresses on our fab bods. Springs and summers mean weddings, posh parties, reunions, proms, evening cocktails, red carpet events.
So when I came across OK Dress brand I was like ‘Oh, okay… well that’s it.’ They have it all: prom dresses, cocktail dresses, wedding dresses, and YES evening dresses too, which is my fave category cause it really makes me feel as if I am owning any red-carpet-inspired-event I’d go to.
Circumstance has it that I do have to attend 3 such events in the near future, and if the Oscars have taught me anything it’s: 1) You can never go wrong with mermaid dresses, 2) black is always an option, but if you dare… strong coloured dresses are even better, and 3) if you’re not attending a wedding, wear a white gown, it’s the most elegant piece ever.
OK dress is really an online hub for evening situations and events and it’s always packed with fab dresses, promotions and discounts, so make sure you check it out and keep it in mind for your future events. What I love about their shop is that they make your gown custom, in any colour so if you like one design but wish it came in black or red – DONE!
How to dress like you’re going to the Oscars?
Classic black dress. Always a winner.
Red dresses are amazing for IRL evening events.
White dresses are the best for elegant evening situations, sans weddings, cause we wouldn’t want to upstage the bride right? Here’s one of my fave – white evening dress.
Burgundy evening dresses are my new obsession. Nothing is quite elegant as that burgundy dress Blake Lively once wore. Perfection.
Midnight blue is perfection, elegance, refinement.
Grey dresses look amazing against sequins and sparkles and this grey evening dress is absolutely stunning.
Green dresses for evening are an absolute winner, with a great design and accessories they are the best.
A beautiful evening dress is always key to looking and feeling amazing on a special evening, but never forget the Devil’s also in the details: go for fab jewellery but never overdo it for evening (either earrings, or necklaces, or bracelets). In this case less is more. Perfect make up and effortless hair and off you go.
